Because of the wide variety of emotional and physical benefits, doTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils are incorporated into most of Melissa’s yoga classes. If you prefer not having the oils used on you topically, you will have an opportunity to discreetly let her know.


Essential oils are literally a plant’s natural defense from disease, predators, and weather. When we use essential oils, we are using the plant’s defense system for our benefit.


doTERRA means “Gift of the Earth”. CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade is doTERRA’s certification process that identifies the rigorous testing every batch of oils receives. doTERRA tests EVERY batch of oils, every time. The reason we can take certain oils interally is specifically related to how pure these oils are. I do not recommend the internal consumption of any brand oils.


There are three ways to experience doTERRA’s essential oils: Aromatically, topically, and internally. Aromatically, essential oils can directly affect the respiratory system by opening the airways. Aromatic diffusion of oils affects our mood and emotion, and the aroma can purify the air. When used topically, essential oils can be applied directly to a specific area. Many of doTERRA’s CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade oils can be taken internally. Again, this is because of doTERRA’s rigorous third-party testing that ensures the highest quality and purity of each bottle. When ingested, essential oils can directly support the digestive system and our immune system.


An iTovi scanner is a handheld device that sends frequencies throughout the body to test which essential oils and supplements your body reacts strongest with. This is certainly not a diagnostic tool but it can help you find out what essential oils and supplements your body might respond to best. The iTOVi scanner combines bioimpedance, pressure sensor, temperature, and Bluetooth® technologies to generate personalized wellness evaluations. You can read more about the technology behind the scanner here


Anyone and everyone! It’s simple, quick, and it provides a great insight into your body. It can be especially beneficial for those new to the oil world. When starting your oily journey it can be very overwhelming but when you are scanned you have a great starting point.

Genesis 1:11-12 “Then God said, ‘Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.’ And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.”
